    97E16977-D6F2-406B-A83F-0FE9CDBE0005.jpeg 56095CC8-46CE-43C6-BD54-41CE6AA2DE6F.jpeg First scenic board was PVA’d and sanded yesterday and the base brown coat added today, I’ve used poster paint this time as my usual spray paint doesn’t seem to be available any more.
    just a rough sketch of what I’m aiming for with the centre section cut out to allow you to get trackside for photography

    The top area with the first pass of grass will be the tree lined area

    394E9C70-84D4-4F22-8711-CB0477BD3A5D.jpeg Second day, top area has had a covering of autumnal 4mm grass and 6mm straw coloured grass. The lower area had had the first pass of static grass. I’ve popped a few trees in place but will need many more. The ply fascia will be covered by Kirtley models weathered concrete papers.

    Thanks, it always looks rubbish at the beginning but it improves with every layer, still a way to go yet but I’ll post a blow by blow account so everyone can see how it’s done

A few more spruce trees from GModels also arrived, once the MBR trees arrive I will use the spruce trees a little more sparingly all over the layout.
    Track base sprayed with Howes Sleeper Grime.

Another forest in a box kit ordered this time I’ll use these as individual trees to fill in along the back to blend in to the backscene. Until the MBR trees arrive none of the current trees are permanently fixed.

    3ABBD5E1-DD84-464A-A703-A6C492B67A12.jpeg A little splash of colour. There will be plenty of scrub type bramble blackberry bushes to hide the join from scenic board to backscene but my preferred supplier ( Polak ) are currently out of stock. I do have some coming from MBR along with another 20 trees but I’m guessing that order will be a month or two away yet.

    Planting some ferns, nettles and thistles today plus some dead fall under the trees. It’s nice to get some out door pictures in natural sunlight

    Looks great. The different layers really build the scene.
